XPN’s 12 Days Of Local Christmas: Find Vienna’s “Christmas Is For Our Hearts”

This December, WXPN and The Key are celebrating the holiday season and helping listeners expand their holiday music collections with special programs that feature local artists. Beginning on December 8, XPN will air its 4th annual 12 Days of XPN Philly Local Christmas program; on December 20, the station will broadcast the 3rd annual XPN Philly Local Home for the Holidays show.

Each weekday from December 8-23, the 12 Days of XPN Philly Local Christmas will showcase a different original holiday song from one of 12 local artists. Listeners can tune in to hear the song presented on air weekday mornings at 9:40 a.m. during the My Morning Download program and afternoons at 1:10 p.m. during the XPN Philly Local Pick of the Day feature. In addition, each song will be featured as a free download exclusively through The Key. Today’s track is Find Vienna’s “Christmas Is For Our Hearts.”

Find Vienna

Find Vienna is a band from Philadelphia that has been riding on the success of its debut EP, In Your Favorite Colors. Since the release of the EP in September of 2009, the band has followed a packed tour schedule playing with bands such as The Script, Neon Trees, Parachute, Green River Ordinance, Mae, and Company Of Thieves. Tracks from In Your Favorite Colors have also been placed in MTV and E! Network television shows, played on top 40 stations and on numerous online radio stations.

In January of 2011, the members of Find Vienna re-entered the studio to begin writing and recording for their debut full-length album. After a few months, they realized that they didn’t want to wait for a full-length. They wanted to release something sooner. As a result, Find Vienna decided to release a five-track EP called In Flight.

The new EP will be released at Find Vienna’s Hometown Holiday Show at World Cafe Live on December 22nd and will be available on all online music retail outlets in late December. Armed with a new EP and live show, Find Vienna is poised to hit the road and up the ante. As for the holidays, Find Vienna wrote “Christmas Is For Our Hearts”, which you can download below.  —Nick Bookbinder
